Data is the currency of the information economy and the price of admission to much of the web. Now you can give a copy of your data to non-profit and research groups to help them advance their work. Imagine donating your Nike+ data to a study on heart health, or your LinkedIn data to a study on happiness in the workplace. DataDonor screens the research groups that are admitted to the program; you decide which data to upload and share. DataDonor is in private beta, but if you're interested, we'll keep you in the loop.
